Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee Moose Test -- Full Story

Bob a 2 paragraph story is not a discredit. No test data, no video, no credibility AFAIK.

I can't believe this Moose test stuff is still going on. Here is proof that just because your vehicle can safely maneuver around a moose, it does not mean you are safe. LOL!

So, I now demand that my Jeep be able to pass a moose test followed by a bear test. Hahaha.

What about this: http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1...grand-cherokee . Who knows who is genuine and who is pushing their own agenda. The parochialism of American corporations is well known as is European anti-American bias.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee Moose Test -- Full Story

This bear story from Yahoo is just bullshit. I live in Oslo-Norway and have never hard about this in any news or television

Actually, I read it on a different site first. A quick google search brought up lots of agencies reporting it. Yahoo was the just the first one that I linked to. So, unless snopes says it didn't happen, I'll believe it.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee Moose Test -- Full Story

I was a driving instructor for many years and I looked at the moose test before considering buying my JGC and as far as I am concerned the test was the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen, really such violent full wheel turns and no attempt at braking or throttle reduction and then after avoiding the strike to throw the vehicle back onto its driving line so violently, why??? if you have avoided the threat. So I have complete faith in owning and knowing my JGC will keep me safe and not reacting to some european propaganda designed to stop a JGC invasion. If you want to base weather you buy your JGC or not because of that video all I can say is your loss and our gain!!!!

Sorry... But your word and years of experience training people to drive has no internet video proof, as such I regret to inform you that your opinion will be taken as utterly rediculous and not believable until there is a video on youtube backing your opinion and experience, good news though, your video requires no sanctioning bodies present to further back your point, it just needs to be a high quality video that is interesting to watch and then and only then will people agree with you.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee Moose Test -- Full Story

yes a picture is a thousand words unfortunately, jeep should be going after them as it is misleading and yes if you get that 2500kg moving around the wheels aint gonna stop it.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee Moose Test -- Full Story

I was up on 2 wheels in a chevy mini-van one time after the car in front of me went on the off ramp but then pulled back into my lane. I was going about 60mph. It does wake you up. So it doesn't have to be a moose.

Anyway I like this video better...watch to the end real scary maneuver!
